BOYS BASKETBALL

TIPTON 58, DELPHI 52

The Blue Devils shrugged off a slow start and played well enough down the stretch to come away with a 58-52 Hoosier Conference victory over the visiting Oracles

It was Tipton’s 38th straight conference victory and improved the Blue Devils record to 5-2 overall and 2-0 in conference play.

“We were really focusing on a couple of fundamentals that we didn’t get right during the game and that was a little bit frustrating,” Tipton Coach Brad Dickey said. “But it’s footwork stuff and it’s hard to have good footwork when you haven’t played in a month, so that’s just the way that was. We’re happy to have held on and won another conference game. I thought Delphi did a really good job. They were well prepared and well coached and our kids were good enough.”

It was Tipton’s first action since an overtime loss to Westfield at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse on Dec. 21.

Sophomore Mason Degenkolb scored a game-high 24 points to lead the Devils. He knocked down 8 of 12 field goals and 8 of 9 free throws.

Junior Brody Dell chipped in a career-high 15 points on 6 of 8 shooting from the field and 2 for 2 accuracy at the line.

Jon Ross added 7 points that included perfect 4 of 4 work at the charity stripe in the fourth quarter. Nate Friend chipped in 5 points.

All that was needed to offset Delphi’s backcourt combo of Brent Hawn and Kolby Myer, who combined to knock down 9 of 16 3-point shots and score 44 points. Hawn led the way with 23 and was 8 of 17 from the field (5-12 from 3-point range). Myer finished with 21 points and was 4 for 4 from behind the arc.

Ross opened the game with a 3-pointer and Tipton raced out to a 7-2 lead. But Delphi responded by closing out the quarter on a 12-2 run with Myer’s bucket giving the Oracles a 14-9 lead.
